Red Eyed Tree Frog - Experiment 3 - Acrylic on streched canvas 100x80cm
Red Eye Tree Frog - painting in the eyes was my next task, and since I was painting in shades of red - and in the mood to continue, I started to put a little more definition on the leaves. I chose red over green because I'm not that good at mixing greens in acrylic yet, and because the underbelly of the frog had to be a reflection of the foliage. This is artistic licence since the real frog has a white underbelly... Standing back and looking at the picture - I'm not too sure about the leaf sticking out of its head like a Bishops cap... Anyone want to add a suggestion?
